It will make you cry the first time you here it!<BR/><BR/>"Christmas Bell Medley" 10/10- i love the way she covers all 3 songs, and they are acually better than the origanals!<BR/><BR/>"Silent Night" 8.5/10 It acually has a slow start but once it gets going, i's an amazing version of the song<BR/><BR/>"Angels We Have Heard On High"- 10/10- an amazing rendition of the original version<BR/><BR/>"Little Drummer Boy"- 10/10 ok here we go BY FAR the best rendition i have ever heard, and will probabbly ever here! I absolutely LOVE the marching band at the end!<BR/><BR/>"Christmas Day- 9.5/10 great song i love the duet between her and Michael W. Smith<BR/><BR/>"O Holy Night"- 9.0/10 I love the rendition of this song! <BR/><BR/>"Mary's Little Boy Child" 10/10- This is an amazing song with a great message!<BR/><BR/>"Children Go Where I Send Thee" 10/10 WOO HOO WAY TO GO MANDISA!!! She blew this song right out of the box, everything about this rendition is perfect!!
